The black trim on my 90q, especially the front bumper is fading. I've tried everything that Halfords has on its shelves but nothing seems to work. I'm thinking of spraying them but I'm not sure. I've heard that using a heat gun carefully can restore the colour. Has anybody tried this?

Hi Mike

I've just tried using a heat gun and it actually works, after a fashion. It does restore the black colour but it's a bit patchy and it leaves a matt finish.

I've heard about this Wurth stuff. Do you know where I can get some? This may just give it the final finish.
